Canadian progressive sci-fi metal innovators VOIVOD reawaken and return with a 3-track 12” Vinyl and Digital EP “THE END OF DORMANCY”, to be released on July 10th, 2020 worldwide via Century Media Records.
A video-clip for “THE END OF DORMANCY”, directed by Syl Disjonk (who previously created the clip “Kluskap O’ Kom” for VOIVOD) and produced by Igor Simonnet, is now available here
The video features a cameo by Yoann-Karl Whissell (TURBO KID). Disjonk previously directed the short film ETHEREAL CHRYSALIS that was reviewed in RUE MORGUE #123 JUNE 2012.
VOIVOD vocalist Denis “Snake” Belanger served as screenwriter for the video clip and adds the following:
“I must say that we had some hesitations regarding the timing of release for this very special video clip. The shoot took place in November 2019 and the scenario is pure science-fiction, but we were concerned the imagery might be insensitive in these pandemic times. In the end, we decided to proceed as planned. Speaking of sci-fi, the documentary called “The Creeping Garden” had a big influence on me and was a great source of inspirations for the concept. A must watch. The slime moulds are amazing creatures and will use ingeniosity to survive. And so are humans…we’ll get through this!”
Director of photography: Luc Desjardins.
